SCGFC boat Kamikaze skippered by Heath Irvine with crew Jay Graham, Shaun Battye and Lachlan Tuckwell took the boat up from Mooloolaba to Fraser Island after the footy on Wednesday night.

They put the gear in wide of Waddy Point first thing Thursday morning to try for a heavy tackle fish or two. They only raised one fish, a small black of around 25kg on 50lb tackle to Lachlan. They pulled the gear in after lunch and ran to the top end of Breaksea Spit and released a stubborn sail to Jay Graham late in the day on 8kg.

After a pretty uncomfortable night the boys got off to an early start. The fishing was consistent with several bites from billfish and plenty of other species. A couple were from small blacks under 5kg which grabbed the bait and let it go or didn't bite at all. Shaun got one of these little guys though and was the smallest of their season at 4-5kg and also two sails, one to Jay and one to Lachlan.

They fished heavy tackle down to Noosa Canyons but only saw a tailing fish that they didn't get a bite from Wide of Double Island Point. They reported blue water and 25 degrees at the top of Fraser Island! Not bad for the middle of winter!







And a short video below.
